Pond Inlet man arrested, charged with arson
Man, 38, to appear in court on Sept. 14
A 38-year-old Pond Inlet man has been arrested and charged with arson for allegedly setting fire to a residence on July 26.
Responding to a report of a fire, the Pond Inlet RCMP found that following a dispute at the residence, in which an intoxicated man was asked to leave, the suspect poured gasoline under the home’s entrance and set it on fire.
Although there were people home, nobody was injured.
The fire did cause minor property damage.
The suspect has since been released from custody and is scheduled to make his first court appearance in Pond Inlet on Sept. 14.
